I got a new tea from Coupang, and it's a black tea mixed with a little bit of cocoa and chili peppers.

Ooh that sounds nice, I wish black tea didn't consistently make me nauseous. And I wish I'd never heard of Coupang -- too tempting to blow my money on salt & vinegar chips and brown sugar poptarts. I'm resisting...so far.  :sad:

1. that tea sounds awesome
2. HOLY SHIT YOU CAN BUY SALT AND VINEGAR CHIPS?? I just had my girlfriend send me some and then nagged friends going home to bring me some back omg I could've been buying them online
I buy them on iHerb.com

don't tell me these things! lol

gotta be strong until March ~

No, not just ****.

****, ****, ****, and **** have always been blocked as well. There might be a few more I'm omitting.

I thought cock got blocked, too~

Let's see the British filter:

wanker, bollocks, bellend, dickhead, cockbag, shithead

All seems to be in order!

wait what was the mystery?

They were discussing whether or not you were a man or a woman. Something about percentages...

I couldn't find the BBQ pork rinds, btw. :/

Reference to a girlfriend is not a valid solution to the Mystery (TM).

The grade 2s had a lesson on giving instructions and naturally some students explained how to "PPAP." The shyest student in class was pretty gungho about it.

Whatever your opinion on the song, anything that gets even my quietest kids speaking fearlessly is good in my book.  :azn:

I like using Sensodyne toothpaste (but not as lube before CO2 jumps in) but they use Baek Jong Won to advertise it, so I have to pull off the sticker with his face on it and leave it on the shelf in the shop.  I just can't stand to see his face, especially in my house.  Before him, they had that horrible material girl from 'Tasty Road' advertising it.  It's almost a good enough reason to not use it.  Maybe I should write a complaint letter to Sensodyne.

I don't, but yeah, the heteronormativity is strong when I can reference "swinging that way" and people think I might have a dick because I mention lube  :rolleyes:

I could swear you flat out used the word 'lesbian' at some point as well, but  :rolleyes:

I thought for sure I knew who you were talking about but nope. Who's the guy with the horse mouth and glasses who I see on laundry detergent and stuff? That's a face I can't stand to see.

So on this brilliant chilly Friday I have been given a small gift of loneliness. Let me start by saying that at my Friday school I absolutely love my Co-teacher and my kids. That being said, I have been having an off week and haven't really wanted to be in classes at all. So when I learned that all the teachers in my office, I share with six teachers, were going to visit another teacher in the hospital and I would be in turn alone for a couple of hours I practically stood up and did a little jig. In my mind I was dancing all around the room.

I needed this break from all people. The quite is very nice, and will give me energy for my last after school class. I think today is turning out to be a pretty good day.

Probably You Jae Seok, he's on everything.  Pretty sure there is more than one of him.

Wasn't there also mention of the new principal tousling your hair or giving advice on how to best wash it lol?? Seems less likely a thing to do if moonbrie were male, though that's just what I'd guess  :laugh: I imagine if moonbrie were male then the innocent gestures from a female principal could seem more, ah, scandalous?

You may have headed him off on the lube front, but you provoked him in another way.

I have this friend and a lot of people think she and I are dating. Her coworkers all think we're dating and a couple of my friends always ask "So how are things going with X?" as if we're an item. It's understandable, given that we both swing that way, and given that she spends almost every weekend at my place, but our relationship is platonic (albeit very close). Her mom has hassled her about whether or not we're dating and she's just told her "Kind of"

Well, this weekend I found out that her grandma thinks we're more than just "kind of" dating. This based on: Every time I go to visit her at her grandparents' house, her grandma makes her vacuum the whole apartment, clean her room, and even judges the outfit she decides to wear. I am also apparently not allowed to sleep over at her house (there's no room for me to sleep over, so I've never tried), and this weekend before she met up with me she was on the phone with her grandpa and he asked if she "needed anything" = lube.

WELL  :laugh:

What threw me off most about this was not that you might be a lesbian, but that you're in Korea working at a school (correct?) and you have (Korean?) co-workers who are not only aware of your sexual orientation but are supportive and encouraging of it. Not that they shouldn't be; it's just very hard for me to imagine.  And on top of that, her whole (Korean?) family, grandparents on down, are also aware of both of your sexual orientations and are so encouraging of the relationship that the grandfather hinted that he was willing to buy sexual lubricant for the two of you (for you to use it during intercourse at their home, but not hers?)? That just sounds way beyond any level of acceptance I would expect from even the most open-minded halabeoji.

Anyway, I'm glad the family, friends, and coworkers are so supportive; too bad you're not actually dating!

that was what made it even funnier! haha

actually, my coworkers don't know anything about my sexuality. my friend's coworkers only know about her sexuality because one of them saw her when we were out at a big queer event in Busan. Koreans can't keep secrets, so the whole office basically knows now, and thankfully they weren't weird about it - they just tease her about "dating" me a lot.

in Korea, her only family is her grandparents. her family situation is actually rather complicated, but we can leave it as: she has relatives in Korea, but her grandparents are the only ones she is in contact with (she lives with them, as Koreans do).

I'm not allowed to stay over at their house because even though they "know" we're "dating" the idea of us having sex there is too much for them.

PHEW

I would've dated her, if she wanted to when we first met. But she didn't, so we aren't, and now it would just be foolish because I'm going back to the US at the end of the school year. It'll already be hard enough since we're best friends - no need to add another layer of grief lmao

EDIT: I realize this was confusing because I used both the words "mom" and "grandma". they are the same person. I don't know why she calls her grandma her mom, maybe it's something her grandma insists on, maybe it's because she's estranged from the rest of her family - I don't know. It took me a good month or two of knowing her to figure out why she had two different "moms"

one mystery solved  :blank:

Also...I'm a bit late but how does needing anything = lube?

For example when I ask one middle aged co worker if there is anything he needs from the teachers room I am not asking if he wants me to bring back a nice big tube of Ky Jelly.

sidenote: when I went over to cook thanksgiving food for her, her grandparents were discussing her future marriage (in vague terms) with her grandpa's friends (did I mention that they were slicing sushi on the living room floor? that was a good time), along with complimenting the food we made and talking about how she would make such a good wife

after she told me that her grandma thinks we are DEFINITELY dating I was like... who do they think you're gonna marry??? because they sure weren't talking about me

the fact that they think we're sexually involved sure does explain why they always knock when we're secretly smoking cigarettes in her room though lmfao

or why they don't bother us when we watch TV in there with the volume up too high
